Or why when people ask me why did I spend $800 on earphones, why did they spend $2000 on a camera lens along with $1000 for the camera (I'm not bagging on people who buy expensive cameras by the way. Just using it as a point of reference. I enjoy taking pics too :))
It's a hobby.
Using Beats as a reference point is a problem though. My HD202s sounded better. Hell my Monoprice 8320s competed with them.
